Fitness for Spirit
“Silence is the absolute poise or balance of body, mind, and spirit. The man who preserves his selfhood ever calm and unshaken by the storms of existence - not a leaf, as it were, astir on the tree; not a ripple upon the surface of shining pool - his, in the mind of the unlettered sage, is the ideal attitude and conduct of life.”
